Bikaner is a city in the north Indian state of Rajasthan, east of the border with Pakistan. It’s surrounded by the Thar Desert. The city is known for the 16th-century Junagarh Fort, a huge complex of ornate buildings and halls.
Another unique aspect about Bikaner are the sand dunes that are scattered throughout the district, especially from the north-east down to the southern area.
One of the earlier established cities, Bikaner still displays its ancient opulence through palaces and forts, built of red sandstone, that have withstood the passage of time.
The city boasts of some of the world’s best riding camels and is aptly nicknamed ‘camel country’.
